DMR Zip Grips!!

Aug 22, 2008
by Simon Paton  
DMR as a company are the "Bread and Butter" of Dirt Jumping. You've all seen the POD's with their pilot Jimmy Pratt entering the atmosphere.

Well this is what he holds onto at the end of his joystick.DMR Zip Grips are £7.95rrp
These are a thin diameter grip with a quarter of the grip having a raised rubber waffle rectangle profile for extra grip and comfort. You may prefer to twist that around so it's right under your knuckle joint whilst riding. This gives super grip and comfort. Internally there is a tough inner core that stops the grips twisting
under pressure.

• Weight is 70grams for the pair (including End Caps)
• Available with or without flange, the flange is the extended rubber flap by where your thumb goes.

• Colours - Black, Bone Grey, Brown, Code Red, Irish Green, Purple, Vivid Blue and White.

Zip/Cable ties come packaged with the grips as do the end caps. What's real nice are the grooves for the zip ties. After all you don't want those grips twisting around or at worst coming off, wilst popping an inverted table for your next attempt at getting "Picture of the Day" - POD!

 I have these in vivid blue, they're brilliant. I think they're better than loc-on grips because they dont need a plastic collar on the inside, so they can put more rubber in for the same diameter, so they last a lot longer

 Kellyroom,

I defo know what an inverted table is. I was refering to your grips slipping whilst performing such a trick and not to Jimmys whip.

Calling me retarded? Perhaps look in the mirror before you you put your name up in lights trying to prove your better than someone else. Why does that always happen on forums and comment boards?

Share the ride? Should be share the love!

Si Paton..


Why is there never a thankyou for popping this up and the nice shots and the info?

 theyre ok at best. lock ons suck imo, have no asorbtion and are thin as f*ck.
these grips dont last all that long to be honest and arent even that good value. you can get a proper decent bmx grip for about a fiver

 Worst grips I've ever used. No life to them whatsoever, and the rubber just flakes off in your hands. Unless they've made them a lot better in the past 4 years.

 Grips wear.. If the grip is comfortable I don't care if it wears in 1 week or 10 weeks.
